Admissions Criteria

We currently have openings in our Fridley High School ALC Program. If your child is between the ages of 16-21, and is interested in enrolling, please contact us. Our school entrance requirements are listed below – you must qualify in at least one area to join our school. A full-time student will attend classes from 8:00 am - 2:50 pm Other scheduling options are also available to accommodate students who work. There is also an extended hours program for those with daytime obligations.

Our process is easy, just phone our Education Center Office at 763-502-5081 and our Enrollment Coordinator Lori O'Dowd will explain how to register online.  Even though we have open enrollment, you will still need to bring proof of your residency (utility bill, drivers license, passport, etc.) to the Education Center.  After the completion of registration, we will call to set up an appointment with Dr. Bodey, our Principal.
